Light and fast. I write stories for an hobby. All my stories are written with Abiword. I like it better hen LibreOffice.

fast and good enough to hack a short structured and formatted text including a odd table or image. No design tool or book creator.

Decided to give it a try after not using it for a while. Yes, it is lean on resources, compared to Libreoffice. Typed up a document, proceeded to save to avoid losing data: Program crahed on the spot. Uninstalling.

Traitement de texte ultra légés, il ne convient pas pour utilisation professionnelle ou en entreprice (on lui préferera LibreOffice Writer pour une utilisation plus poussée). Mais il est idéal pour les très vieux ordinateurs.

Riddled with bugs, and always has been. I'm a writer, and this is software for writing. Yet, from experience I would never trust it to handle my words with care. Problem? Yes.

Abiword is my favorite word processor. It has everything I need and more but not too much more. After Google Chrome and Thunderbird, the first tool out of the box.

Abiword is a simple basic word processor. I write documents using Abiword almost daily for internal company and personal use, and external publication/presentation documents.

It certainly looks more appealing than OpenWord, especially on Mint 10 with its Faenza buttons. However I've encountered some rendering problems with .docx format (MSWord2007). .doc and .odt formats seem to work fine.
